The worst in politics in 2007 were the Post and Leggett repeatedly calling for state tax increases to fill a "deficit" in a budget increasing 8.5% when they knew that Montgomery County gets back 20 cents for every dollar it sends to the state. They couldn't thnk of any cuts to make either. The worst in politics in 2008 will be the Post, Leggett and Knapp repeatedly saying that the charter property tax limit should be exceeded and that our ballot question to make it more difficult to exceed the charter property tax limit should be opposed. These folks have no shame or decency about sending hundreds more into foreclosure and keeping thousands more out of the Montgomery County housing market. SAVE OUR HOMES!

Have you seen what is in the new school budget? 5 counselors to elementary schools; 6 parent community outreach coordinators; 10 assistant principals to elementary schools; 16 lunch-hour aideds and playground supervisors. We are going to get our property taxes raised to pay for new non-teachers. The Montgomery County Superintendent of Schools earns about twice as much as the Chief Justice of the U.S. Supreme Court!

Oil futures for light sweet crude hit $100/barrel today for the first time ever. The solution of the Post-Leggett team? Raise gasoline prices to make it hurt even more. They would waterboard us if they got the chance.
